SIX LEVELS OF DIALOGUE BOOST LETS YOU TAILOR THE SOUND TO YOUR NEEDS.
We are pleased to introduce the best dialogue enhancement speaker money can buy. The AccuVoice AV155 offers six levels of voice boost using our patented hearing aid technology. Each new level delivers stronger dialogue emphasis, while minimizing the non-vocal parts of the soundtrack. The results are remarkable. Voices are clear and easy to understand, even at extremely low volumes. You'll hear every word, even on poorly mixed programs or British programs.
IT'S NOT ABOUT LOUDNESS. IT'S ABOUT CLARITY.
If you can't understand voices on TV, what do you do? Turn it up! The problem is that when you turn it up, you turn EVERYTHING up -- not just the voices. So background sounds, music and sound effects all get louder, and prevent you from understanding dialogue. But the AV155 uses proprietary digital algorithms that separate the voices from the rest of the soundtrack -- and then manipulate them much like a hearing aid does. The result is uncanny. Voices simply "jump out" of the soundtrack so you can hear them clearly.
EASY TO INSTALL.
The AV155 is so small (17” wide) you can put it just about anywhere. And it works well above or below your TV, or to the left or right. Hookup is simple – just one connecting wire to your TV. Then plug it in the wall, turn down the sound on your TV speakers, and you get high quality sound and clear voices on every program. It’s so easy to use it has a one-page owner’s manual.
TAMING LOUD COMMERCIALS.
If you've ever been blasted out of your chair by a too-loud commercial - you'll love our Output Leveling (OL) feature. It’s incorporated in the Accuvoice Modes OR you can turn it on by using the “Other Settings” button. A sophisticated processor takes over, making soft sounds louder and loud sounds softer, so there are fewer jarring moments when switching channels or when commercials come on. This system also helps by boosting the audio levels from a DVD or Blu Ray player that are not loud enough.
GREAT SOUND.The AV155 is a great sounding little speaker. Music, movies and TV shows will come to life in your room. This is a true high fidelity loudspeaker.
MANY PLACEMENT OPTIONSYou can place the AV155 in front of your TV, or on a shelf anywhere near your TV. Or you can incorporate it into a TV mounting bracket using a Soundbar mounting kit and the included threaded inserts.
PHASECUE® VIRTUAL SURROUND SOUND.ZVOX's proprietary PhaseCue virtual surround processing gives you rich, three-dimensional sound with movies or music. Sound & Vision magazine calls it "remarkably ingenious."
WILL WORK WITH MOST REMOTE CONTROLS.It’s easy to program the speaker so that it responds to power, volume and mute commands from your current IR (infrared) remote control.
DISAPPEARING DISPLAY.The speaker features a four-digit display located behind the speaker grille that shows the current setting for volume, bass, treble and PhaseCue® (virtual surround) - and also shows when you have engaged the Mute, Output Leveling (OL) or AccuVoice (AC1-AC-6) features. A few seconds after you stop using your remote (or front panel) controls, the display disappears completely.
STURDY INJECTION MOLDED ABS CABINETThe AV155 uses a strong, acoustically inert molded cabinet. High wall thickness and high pressure molding insures that cabinet resonances stay out of the audio reproduction.
My wife loves it and that’s what matters.
I am 73 years old and I don’t think it took me 5 minutes to install this thing. Even teaching it to work with my DirecTV remote was simple and easy. Most importantly, the difference in sound is remarkable. I especially like that I can choose the degree of voice amplification that I want. BTW, I discovered there are certain advantages to ordering from the company instead of some other places on the web in terms of the test period and such. Also, note that the factory shipping was very fast and at no additional charge. I’ve recommended this unit to several older friends and family members and suggested they check it out. Buying this was definitely a good decision.
Difficult to figure out how to put it together great sound
BETTER THAN EXPECTED. WOULD RECOMMEND IF YOU HAVE SPEECH RECOGNITION PROBLEM . I USE # 2 SETTING. VOLUME ADJUSTMENT IS MORE THAN SUFFICIENT. SAY GOOD BY TO BUILT IN TV SPEAKERS.
I love this Speaker. It is very noticeable that the music is lower now and you can clearly hear people talking. I purchased the same for my mother and she can now watch her shows because she can hear the people talking over the background music, without turning up the TV volume to extreme. It is very easy to hook up to the TV also. Easy to program my same remote so we do not have the extra remote issue. Great Product!
